ASIAN BROCCOLI SALAD WITH PEANUT SAUCE

INGREDIENTS:
BROCCOLI SALAD INGREDIENTS:
• 1 large head broccoli, cut into small florets
• 1 cup shelled cooked edamame
• 1/2 cup thinly-sliced green onions
• 1/2 cup peanuts
• 1 batch peanut sauce (recipe below)
• sesame seeds, for garnish

PEANUT SAUCE INGREDIENTS:
• 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
• 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce (if you are gluten-free, use GF soy sauce or tamari)
• 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
• 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
• 1-2 tablespoons hot water, as needed to thin the sauce

DIRECTIONS:
TO MAKE THE BROCCOLI SALAD:
Heat a large pot of water until it is boiling. Add in the broccoli florets and boil for 30 seconds. Use a strainer to transfer them into a bowl of ice water, which will immediately halt the cooking process. Drain. Then add the remaining ingredients and toss until combined. Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds if desired.
